Phobos armour is the go-to choice for Primaris Space Marines when stealth and agility are required for a mission. With its lightweight design and specialised wargear, a squad of Phobos-clad Space Marines is an unstoppable force on the battlefield.
The Phobos Strike Team is a group of lethal operatives that can undertake independent missions or support wider battlefield objectives. And now, with the multipart plastic kit, you can build 10 Space Marines clad in Phobos armour to deploy shock and awe tactics against your enemies.
This versatile kit allows you to build miniatures that can be used as Phobos Strike Team operatives in games of Kill Team or fielded in games of Warhammer 40,000 as either Incursors or Infiltrators. The kit also includes a massive assortment of weapons, heads, and accessories to build specialists like the Voxbreaker, Saboteur, Helix Adept, and Marksman.
And that’s not all. The kit also comes with two Haywire Mine tokens on their own bases, adding even more tactical options to your gameplay. With this kit, you have the freedom to build your Space Marines in any way you desire, making it an excellent addition to your collection.

How to paint the Kill Team: Phobos Strike Team
- Step 1: Priming
Start by priming your Kill Team: Phobos Strike Team models with a suitable primer. For this guide, we recommend using Chaos Black Spray primer, which provides a solid foundation for your paint.
- Step 2: Base Coating – Armor
Apply a base coat of a blue paint, such as Kantor Blue, to the entire armor of your Phobos Strike Team models. Ensure even coverage and let it dry completely.
- Step 3: Base Coating – Exposed Skin (if applicable)
For any exposed skin areas, use a flesh-tone paint like Cadian Fleshtone. Apply thin layers to achieve a realistic skin tone. Allow it to dry completely.
- Step 4: Base Coating – Gold Details
Paint all the gold details, such as ornamental elements and insignias, with Retributor Armour. Be precise and ensure complete coverage.
- Step 5: Base Coating – Red Details
Use a red paint like Mephiston Red for any red details on your models. This includes cloth, insignias, or weapon markings. Apply it carefully and let it dry.
- Step 6: Base Coating – Black Weapons
For the weapons, apply a black paint like Abaddon Black. Be thorough, covering all weapon components evenly.
- Step 7: Shading
To add depth and realism, apply shades to your models. Use Nuln Oil for the armor, Carroburg Crimson for red details, and Reikland Fleshshade for any exposed skin. Ensure the shades settle in recesses for added contrast.
- Step 8: Highlighting
Highlight the blue armor with a lighter blue paint, like Altdorf Guard Blue. Focus on edges and raised surfaces for a vibrant look.
- Step 9: Highlighting – Exposed Skin (if applicable)
If your models have exposed skin, highlight it with a flesh-tone paint slightly lighter than the base color. For example, use Kislev Flesh. Highlight features like the nose, cheekbones, and knuckles with Reikland Fleshshade you used.
- Step 10: Highlighting – Gold Details
Highlight the gold details with Liberator Gold. Concentrate on edges and raised areas to make them stand out.
- Step 11: Highlighting – Red Details
For red details, use Evil Sunz Scarlet to add highlights. Apply sparingly to create vibrant accents.
- Step 12: Drybrushing
To create texture and depth on the black weapons, apply a dry brush of Eshin Grey. This will give them a worn and weathered appearance.
- Step 13: Basing
Create a suitable base for your models. You can use texture paints like Astrogranite Debris for a rocky terrain effect. Dry brush with Dawnstone for highlights. Add details like grass tufts or rocks if desired.
- Step 14: Varnishing
Protect your models by applying a coat of varnish. I recommend using Munitorum Varnish for a matte finish. This will safeguard your paint job and provide a finished look to your Kill Team: Phobos Strike Team.
